Growth Facts

The Details

At 3 ft. to 4 ft. tall with a 4 ft. to 6 ft. spread, this shrub features soft, dark green needles and dense green foliage all year round! It's an excellent evergreen foundation plant-it's thick and lush enough to cover pipes, vents, and other eye-sores.

How to Grow

Dark Green Spreader Yew will grow well in full sun, but this plant is usually reserved for shady gardens, because there are so few good evergreens for shade. Part shade is preferable, as deep shade may encourage spacey growth. Water regularly. It is not fussy when it comes to soil types, and is nicely low maintenance. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more.
